In 1984 Margaret Thatcher labelled 160,000 striking miners, their families and supporters ‘The Enemy Within’. This film uncovers the hidden story of these remarkable people and their role in the Miners’ Strike. It looks at a country at war and the ordinary men and women who were forced to step on to the stage on history to fight for their communities.
Guest speaker is Bob Anderson (Ex Branch Secretary Hem Heath NUM). Bob will recall the year long struggle of 1984/5 and the subsequent fight to save the pits in 1992/3. Bob shared the platform with Tony Benn in the huge rally against pit closures in Worcester in 1993
